Hot Cocoa Cookies

Twelve batches of cookies was definitely a bit more than I could handle. I’m cheating a little with today’s post. One of my friends actually made these for the cookie swap we went to the other night… but they were so good and by far my favorite, so I had to share them!

Using an electric mixer, beat together sugars and butter until fluffy. Add eggs & vanilla and continue beating. In another bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. Slowly add dry ingredients to the butter mixture. Add chocolate chips. Shape into 1 inch balls and drop onto a lined sheet. Bake 7-8 minutes, remove from oven and lightly press a few marshmallows in the top of each cookie. Return to oven and back an additional 3-4 minutes. Let cool a few minutes on the pan, then transfer to wire racks.
